Sea of Thieves invites you on board the party boat

With the closing of the year comes the closing of Sea of Thieves’ technical alpha test. As Rare prepares for the beta in January, the studio said that all alpha testers have graduated to become “Founders” with CBT access and a forum badge.

Rare also said that it’s cleaning up its forums: “With the end of the technical alpha means we’re going to be doing some general housekeeping in the forums, there will be categories that merge, some that have become read only and categories that have disappeared. Our goal in this is to open up the forums to use as we noticed that some categories (technical alpha and insider) were used disproportionately more than others.”

So as you wait for your chance to play the closed beta (or, heck, March’s launch), you can join the developers on their party boat for an hour of gameplay after the jump. Party boats are all well and good, but they are no substitute for a golden yacht. In our opinion.

Since the game is session-based there’s no point to naming a ship if it isn’t persistent.

I thought once you released an alpha you had to raise funds for three more years before you could release the next stage. What am I missing here?

Guessing Microsoft probably put their foot down and told Rare that the game needs to launch by the end of Q1 2018 since it’s their big upcoming exclusive and Microsoft initially was wanting the game out in 2017. Game literally launches on the first day of spring as well.
